New Sony Nano competitor?

Sony is likely gearing up to debut a new flash-based digital media player that will compete with Apple's iPod nano. British online store Play inadvertently posted and later removed a listing for an upcoming new Sony player dubbed the NW-S706, according to Electronista. The device resembles a hybrid between the design of Sony's E00 series and the controls of the S2 Sports model, but will include 4GB of flash storage as well as a color display capable of depicting album art. The player will also feature an audio input jack, an FM tuner, and 50 hours of battery life. The unreleased player boasts a price tag of 180, however, compared to Apple's 4GB iPod nano which sells for 129.

    Sony once again releases a "competing" product at a significantly higher price. For the higher price, customers get no iTunes, no iTunes Store, no access to hundreds of third-party accessories... why bother?
